Beamish, previously named 'Pit Hill', is a village in County Durham, England, situated to the north east of Stanley.The village is contained within Hell Hole Wood and is home to Beamish Museum, an open-air museum seeking to replicate a northern town of the early 20th century. Explore Beamish's surroundings by going to Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens (in Belsay) and Prudhoe (Prudhoe Golf Club & Prudhoe Castle). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Beamish Museum, identify plant and animal life at Potter's Tropical Village, steep yourself in history at Derwentcote Steel Furnace, and get answers to all your questions at Thornley Woodlands Centre.
